It Is Marvelous

It Is Marvelous

There are still fires
within the galaxy

How lovely the light is at dusk
We can say that

There is a shoulder
in the place on your body you have
been told is a shoulder

It is a real bone

You, beloved,
are a former child

For each year you continue living
something is cast off behind you

  1. That last couplet is perfect. I've definitely been feeling that way lately.
